we have similar mustaches

"Let me say, with the risk of appearing ridiculous, that the true revolutionary is guided by strong feelings of love."

Che Guevara has been an object of my admiration and intrigue ever since I had the opportunity to live in Argentina for two years.  Yes I know... "ewwwww he's a bad communist revolutionary," but he is a lot more than that.  He is an example of loyalty and commitment.  A movie is coming out in September of this year based on his Motorcycle Diaries.  These diaries chronicle his travels throughout South America and his conversion to the people... the working poor.  In 2006 Benicio Del Toro will play Che in another movie directed by Steven Soderbergh.

Che Guevara is one of my heroes. And I'm not just saying because I'm some pissed off youth. The Motorcycle Diaries touched me deeply. If you haven't seen the trailer you definatly should.

I'm interested and will definitely see the movie. Hopefully, I will also read the book. Che has always fascinated me in the way some far-off oft admired hero of other people sometimes fascinates people from whom they are far off.
